KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 — Police have recorded a statement from a suspect who allegedly caused the crash which resulted in the death of a motorcyclist on the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE), on June 14.
Ampang Jaya district police chief, ACP Mohd Azam Ismail, said that the police had also recorded statements from witnesses, namely SUKE and DUKE closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera operators, yesterday.
He said that the suspect’s condition is currently reported to be stable, and is still under treatment.
“In addition, both motorcycles involved have been sent for inspection by PUSPAKOM and the Chemistry Department,” he said in a statement today.
The investigation paper will be referred to the state deputy public prosecutor’s office in the near future, once the investigation is completed, he added.
